So we decided to have a “staycation” (meaning: vacation at home or in the city you live in) in Sydney for two days and give ourselves a break from doing household chores and pretend to be tourists in our city.
Our home for two nights was near Chinatown. We checked-in on Friday afternoon after work, dropped our bags and headed straight out to explore the lively streets of Haymarket and have dinner.
Dropped by World Square and checked out the shops there. We saw our favourite Meiji Chocolates at Miracle Asian Supermarket.
From our suking DVD store, we had dinner at Yummy Chinese BBQ Restaurant then went back to Chinatown and visited the biggest Morning Glory store I’ve ever seen.
Some of the stuff I got from Morning Glory: Banana Case, telephone-inspired hair ties and a pair of Elmo earphones.
Saturday, the Husband’s birthday, I took him to the Adriano Zumbo Lab at Rozelle. The Husband has a very sweet tooth and he loves to bake so I thought that going to Zumbo’s Lab would be a great treat for him.
I will write a separate post about our adventure at Zumbo’s Lab, in the mean time, feast your eyes on the hundreds of Macarons that we saw at the lab.
Followed by a good stroll outside Westfield. Went in and out of shops, played at the Apple Store, took photos of street art and incidentally came across Mario and Luigi.
A quick coffee break at Becasse Bakery (went back to Westfield Dining Precinct) before we attended mass at St. Mary’s Cathedral.
On Sunday morning, we went back home and immediately faced the chores that await us but the two-night break we had, even if short, was uplifting and precious.
